Default 1st year anniversary

Today is my 1st anniversary of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Wow !!! I can’t believe how the tie went by. My last surgery was in August and I feel like time has stood still for me.

I have major fatigue- big deal. It’s the chest pain that gets to me. But I have my mammo next month and I am scared. I am a “triple negative” and recurrences are most common in the 2-3 years following. After that we are kind of on the same path as other breast cancer people. I was supposed to have the mammo this month but after having breast surgery in August, I couldn’t imagine the pain of being squeezed and having my stitches pop open. So I delayed it until next month.

We just got back from a trip to Minot Air Force Base to see my daughter and grandkids. Her DH is deployed and she is alone with the kids. So we drove up to spend a week with them.

We had to come back this week because Mark and I have a full week of DR appt’s. I am so tired of DR appt’s. We must spend half our lives sitting in the waiting room. Mark has a problem and needs serious medical attention this week. There is always something. But we hang in there are do the best that we can.

Love and hugs to all of you.
